When it comes to investing, I’m taking the real estate play every time. It’s a real asset that you can touch, feel, and see. It generates income that I can leverage for other investments just to name a few advantages. A lot of people are asking what’s a better investment – real estate or Bitcoin? I believe cryptocurrency will make it at some point, but it’s not there yet.

SHOULD YOU INVEST IN REAL ESTATE OR BITCOIN?
You need to have enough money banked to make an investment that will weather any storm. Any up and down in the market or recession. A small investment in a small property leaves you exposed.
If I only had $50k, I would take that money and invest in myself. I’d make sure I eat healthy, have the right clothes, take care of my wife, make sure my kids are happy, and learn new skills that can pump up my income.
The only thing that will make you money is you.
If you have $100,000 or more, make your first investment in something real that will pay you money. When I look at investing, I look at what will pay me cash every month. Income gives me confidence. There’s a reason why 90% of all money is tied into high-end real estate deals —because it’s been a proven winner over time.
